Top US Games And Console Sales For October 2021

The NPD Group has released anoth­er month­ly sales report, unveil­ing the best-sell­ing games, con­soles, and acces­sories for Octo­ber 21st. In total, peo­ple spent $4.4 bil­lion across gam­ing as a whole, up by 16%, which is a new record for Octo­ber. For the first 10 months of the year, total spend­ing reached $46.7 bil­lion, up by 12%.

The Nin­ten­do Switch was the best-sell­ing con­sole for Octo­ber in terms of unit and dol­lar sales. The launch of the Switch OLED mod­el in Octo­ber no doubt helped pump up the over­all sales. The PS5 con­tin­ues as the top sell­ing con­sole of 2021 by total dol­lars, but the Switch is the leader in units.

In Octo­ber, total spend­ing on hard­ware rock­et­ed by 82% to $472 mil­lion, while year-to-date spend­ing leapt by 53% to $3.9 billion. 

When it comes to games, Far Cry 6 was the best-sell­ing title over­all in the US for Octo­ber 2021, with Back 4 Blood being the run­ner-up. Metroid: Dread placed third, and these sales were the high­est ever for the Metroid series. Mad­den NFL 22 land­ed fourth, fol­lowed by Demon Slay­er: Kimet­su no Yai­ba: The Hinoka­mi Chronicles.

Spend­ing on acces­sories went up by 5% to $158 mil­lion, with the Xbox Elite Series 2 con­troller com­ing in as the top-sell­ing acces­so­ry in Octo­ber. The PS5 DualSense (white ver­sion) is the best-sell­er for the year.
